    The Christmas Carol with a twist

    This is a heart warming book which feels like a modern day version of the Christmas Carol. There is a bit of a twist and a somewhat unpredictable ending. A little cliche, but enjoyable to read.

    The Gift is a Gift...of Great Writing

    I don't know how Ahern creates some unique stories but she has done it again with the modern day fable The Gift. A wonderful Christmas story that makes you appreciate each day.

    makes you think about how we set priorities

    somehow, by the end of the book, I was caring about the most un-sympathetic character and bemoaning the way the book ended

    Another good Cecelia Ahern book!

    I saw this book at the store and didn't realize Cecelia Ahern had another book out. I really loved reading her book "P.S. I Love You" and decided to give this one a try. It took me three days to read it. It was wonderful! It definitely leaves you with a lesson. The only thing I did not like was the ending. It brought me to tears in both a good and bad way. Had it ended the way I had wanted, I would have given the book all 5 stars.

    Truly a "gift" to read!

    This book was amazing. It really made you think about how you spend your time. The story was a little unbelievable, but isn't that what a good book is supposed to be...a way to escape into someone else's life and enjoy the possiblity of what could be? This book did that! I would definitely recommend it!

    Great Read!

    This was a great and easy read! The plot seemed a little slow at first, but once I read a few chapters it was hard to put down.
